Artist: John Asaro
John Asaro is a prominent American painter concerned primarily with capturing the natural lyricism of human figures in movement. The subjects of his paintings range from ballerinas, to nudes in repose, to graceful swimmers, to civilians engaged in everyday tasks. He relishes color, pushing hues to their extreme and allowing shadow and form to come alive in his unique, sometimes daring blends of oil paint, crystallizing the activity of humankind in still images that seem to transfer the grace of human life from canvas to the spaces they inhabit.
